Newcastle v Wolves: What was said?
Newcastle boss Eddie Howe: “I embrace winning and I love that positive feeling, and I want to see other people happy, I want to see our supporters experience success. That’s my motivation to do the job.
“But I don’t think it’s healthy for me to get caught up in it and become a person of extreme emotion, I don’t think it’s going to help my players at all, so keep calm, use my brain to think logically and intelligently, I think, are the things I need.
“When we went on our unbeaten run I was the same, probably sitting here and you’re thinking, ‘Come on, give us some more’. But on the other side, I’m exactly the same.
“That doesn’t mean I don’t feel the emotion because I feel it. Losing for me is very painful, but it’s important that I don’t get caught up in it because I have another match to prepare for, so I make sure I do my job effectively to help the players perform well in the next match. . ”
